    I'm sitting here very bored right now, we're under a 24 hour curfew until further notice. The eye of Frances is supposed to pass close by-the eye of Charley went right over us. According to the news we will be getting the outer bands of rain this afternoon, by tonight we will be getting 95mph winds and they are expecting 20+ inches of rain. But to answer your question Dino, nothing is happening right now- its sunny and about 81 degrees.

    There's basically not a structure here that doesn't have major damage already. Most houses have no roofs (everywhere you look there is a sea of blue tarps) and the contractors are so backed up they estimate 4 to 5 weeks for any repairs. the city said the debris from Charley would take until October to clean up, so that's still everywhere. My insurance estimate is around 30 thousand in damages and my house isn't as bad as some of the neighboring houses. Yes there will be more damage but there is really nothing you can do about it, and hurricane season doesn't end until November.

    Hey Lenny, How you doin'? We haven't heard from you in a while. Great pics. Sorry to see Anglins pier blew down. Hurricane Donna took it down about twenty years ago. Stay frosty.

    I'm thinking about all of you. I know what its like. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] Batten down the hatches and stay safe. Hopefully Frances will stay weakened. At least its not the Cat 4 it was.

    Keep us updated if you can. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
